    Wedding Floral & Flauna

    I saw lots of fresh floral ideas at the Spring Wedding Show. It’s unusual to see florists’ vision for a outdoor casual-chic wedding at wedding shows. The showcase pieces are usually more traditional. So it’s great to see a different vibe from the top floral designers and see their range.

    Highlights below.

These themes are often inspired by different cultures and tropical escapes. What’s not to love? These decor ideas are perfect for a destination or a cultural wedding.
